Important Terms to Know About Tarps
Tarps are designed for a variety of purposes, from camping to military use. They’re ideal for repelling water and provide shade and protection from the elements. Tarpaulin is the material tarps are made from, usually sold in large sheets available in a spectrum of colors. If you’re looking to pick up a tarp, canvas awning or canopy at a retail outdoor living store for your next camping trip, consider these important terms.

Grommet: An eyelet, reinforced by metal or plastic, through which a fastener is passed. Many tarps feature these small necessities, so that campers and other tarp users can tie their tarps to tree branches, stakes in the ground, or anywhere else that will provide a secure reinforcement.

Billboard Tarp: 100 percent waterproof, these large vinyl tarps are tough, weather resistant, and provide UV protection. Often made of 3 ply PVC vinyl, these tarps are designed to last outdoors for many years.

Polyvinyl Chloride: A waterproof material that coats tarps to protect them from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which could lead to fading and other damage.

Polyester Cords: Tough mesh weaves of denier polyester cords present in the stronger tarp types. Used primarily by roofers and gardeners, these high mesh count silver tarps are great for shielding against the sun’s heat.

PVC Film: Ideal for packaging food, clothing, toys, medicine, and hardware, this film is sold in rolls by retailers who also sell tarps. Featuring a high tensile and tear strength, this film is sold in clear or colored variations.

Looking to place an awning over your back porch for shelter? Need to cover your pool? Then you need a tarp. Tarpaulins, or tarps, are heavy duty pieces of material with small holes along the edges, called grommets, used for protection against water and sun damage. They have many uses, and before making a purchase you should ask yourself the following questions.

  • What do you need the tarp for?
    There are so many different types of tarps to choose from, therefore it will make the buying process easier if you know what you will be using it for. Poly tarps are waterproof and cheaper than canvas tarps, but canvas tarps protect surfaces better. That is why painters working on hardwood surfaces would rather use a canvas cover that is not waterproof as opposed to a poly tarp that is. Several tarps are specially marketed for the jobs they do, examples are hay tarps, lumber tarps and baseball tarps.

  • Are there any special features of a specific kind of tarp?
    As mentioned above, tarps can be waterproof and they can also be heavy duty. Both characteristics should be taken into consideration if the tarp has to stay outside for a long time. Some tarps, such as truck tarps, have reinforced grommets to help keep them tied down. Also, there are fire retardant tarps for storing flammable objects. Furthermore, tarps can be decorated. Canvas tarps are used for awnings and other types of decorations.

  • What size tarp do you need?
    After deciding what kind of tarp to get, you need to select a size. Measure the area the tarp will cover. Sometimes it is better to allow for a few extra inches. Remember when buying large tarps that most can be rolled up for easy storage.
